Any advice on what I can do?, Im 34 weeks pregnant on monday.
I hurt my foot a couple of days ago it swell and brusied up, went to a&e,
they did an x-ray and said nothing was broken, it was just soft tissue damage, I've been resting it, but it's swelling up even more.
Ive been taking co codamol and I'm struggling to walk,
I'm in constant agony and I'm now getting pins and needles in my toes which im struggling to move.

Soft tissue damage does tend to be worst than an actual break and it does get worst before it gets better. Leave it til Monday and if it's not any better then perhaps go back and ask for a re-xray.

Does ur calf hurt at all??
If you have that amount of swelling and pain u need to go back to a and e and have it assessed or phone nhs 24.
It could be fine or it could be a DVT or even compartment syndrome.
I would suggest further professional evaluation quickly. You should not have any pins and needles/loss of sensation at this stage normally x
